ltis expected that within the next
three months the Grand Trunk Pacific
passenger trains will bo running between Montreal and Tete Jaune Cache
in the mountains. The route from
Montreal westward will be via Toronto
over the Grand Trunk lines to North
Bay, thence : by the T. & N. 0., over
which the Grand' Trunk has juning
right3, to Cachrano, thence over the
Transcontinental to Winnipeg, and for
the remainder of the way over the
Grand Trunk Pacific to Edmonton and
into British Columbia. ,
' An alternative route will be provided
from Montreal to Ottawa and thenee
over the old Canada Atlantic to Scotia
Junction and Perry Sound.
Contractors' reports regarding the
Cochrane-Superior Junction sections received at the office of the commission,
indicate that the line is in first-class
shape. On the strength of these reports the final trip of inspection will be
made next week by officials of the G.P.
P. and G.T.R. and the Transcontinental commission from Cochrane to Superior Junction.
Chairman Leonard, of the commission, left here today and will proceed
to Cochrane, where he will be. met by
Mr. Morley Donaldson, vice-president
of the G.T.P.; Mr. Donald Grant, chief
engineer of the N.T.R. Commission,
and several other Grand Trunk officials.
The tour of inspection will last a week
and or. the recommendation of these
officials will depend when the service
will be inaugurated. It is said that the
service will gain a large share of the
tourist travel in addition to freight
traffic during the summer.
The formal taking over of the now
section of the N.T.R. from Superior
Junction will be made, it is expected,
as soon as the engineer has declared
the line to be ready for operation.
There is a probability that if the traffic
warrants an independent passenger
service will be inaugeratedfrom Toronto to British Columbia.
Five days less will be required for
the trip around the world when the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway opens its
new line across Canada to the Pacific
Coast a year from next month. This
will shorten the distance to be traversed by the globe trotter and the first
une to take this route will establish a
new record.
Lying well to the north, the new
rail line will take advantage of the
smaller diameter of the globe as tlie
longitudinal lines converge towards the
pole. The traveler starting from London, for example, will be able to follow
almost a straight westward course until he reaches home again.
He will leave England at Liverpool
on a liner bound for Halifax, where he
will board a mail train for Prince Rupert. Upon arrival, he will go aboard
one of the fast Oriental steamships to
be put in service out of that port and
will disembark at Valdiyostock, taking
passage over the Trans-Siberian Rail
way to St. Petersburg. There he will
step into a compartment of the fast
North Express, with a ticket for Ost-
end, Belgium, where he will take the
fast channel steamertl for i Dover aiid
reach London by mail train.

last Thursday night, the large steamer
Will be again chartered and sent down
the river for some dfttancV and have
attached to the rear a large iron bar
with several hooks attached. . It is
thought that this scheme will havo better results than any of the others that
have been tried, The suggestion cowes
from Inspector Wright who will ask.
Thomas Grady to put it into action.
Sunday Mr. Grady and a crew of men
went down the river for twenty miles,
but no trace of the bodies was found.
They tore all of the booms apart and
made a thorough search of the banks
■ on each side of thjS river. It is now
proposed, to charter the steamer once
more, and make a similar trip, but
with different apparatus. The large
iron bar would have weights to make
it sink, while the hooks will possibly
catch the clothing of the bodies if they
are floating about.
It is fully believed that all of the
bodies have risen to tbe top of the water. The body of Mrs. Hooper was
probably on the' way to the surface
when it was caught by the cable at
O'Neil's gravel plant. The police have
not given up the search by any means.
Sunday afternoon Inspector Wright accompanied by a friend, walked along
the shore and banks for, four miles in
an effort to locate any of the victims.
Mr. Grady who has taken the most
prominent part in the search, is still
searching the river.  I
The South Fort George Baseball
team left here last Saturday night
for Quesnel, where they played three
games with the Quesnel team, winning each game by a larga score. The
result of the games was as follows:
First game; S.F.G., 13 runs: Q. 5.
Second game, S.F.G 12 runs: Q. 5.
Third game, S.F.G. 19 runs, Q. 6.
The team are loud ln their praise
of the hospitality offered them in
old Quesnel, and assert that1' the
Quesnel team will play a return game
here .before the end of the season.
In the game between tbe home team
and Fott George, played last week,
the local team acquitted themselves
very badly, being defeated with a
score of nine runs to three in lavor
of the jjlprt George team. The Fort
George team played a splendid game
and the local boys made many errors and were   badly out   of form.

Mr. F. Engen, accompanied by a
party of ladies and gentlemen from
Saskatoon, were amongst the arrivals in town this week. Mr. Engen is
one ot the best known realty operators in western Canada.
Mr. Engen has large land holdings
in this section. He visited the Fort
George country last in 1907, when,
accompanied by a party of friends he
made a journey through the Nechaco valley, and came down the
Fraser river on a scow.
Mr. Engen is represented in this
section by Dr. E. L. Evans, who also
has large interests in the agricultural lands of the district.
The Fort George Tribune, a newspaper published in the interests of
the Natural Resources Security Company's townsites, printed iu its last
issue an expose of certain facts in
connection with the attempt of a
number of prostitutes to establish
themselves in their ancient line of
business on the "legal registered
townsite of Fort George."
Tbe Tribune is much alarmed at the
threatened invasion of the "clean
town" by these ladies of easy virtue,
for it has long taken advantage of
the fact that this town has a restricted, district to refer to this state
of affairs in any manner detrimental
to South Fort Geprge. It has also
followed carefully the campaign represented in the' advertising literature'
of the Natural Resources Security
Company Ltd., which endeavors to
create, at long distance, the impression that South Fort George is a
sort of red-light annex to the "real
Fort George," and that South Fort
George, Is therefore, an undesirable
place in.which to live or do business.
'The real facts of the case are
briefly these. In the townsite of
South Fort George there are two
houses of prostitution. These houses
have been allowed to operate as tbe
outcome of a line of policy deemed
advisable under existing conditions'.
The Herald refuses to argue the
ethics of this course; we leave- it to
the common sense of our readers te
judge -whether a segregated area ie,
or is not necessary in this town today.
The administration of these matters rests, here, as in other unorganized communities, in the hands of the
provincial police. In spite of the
fact that we have had a succession of
chiefs of police,, with d flerent ideas
on the subject of the red-light section, the policy of segregation has
been maintained.
It appears that a number ot Fort
George,business, men, desirous, of obtaining, their share of, the. "free
money" which the women of the district expend in a community, aided
and abetted by a tough, element
which has other considerations in
view, have succeeded in prevailing
upon one of the. women of the diatrict, Miss Irene Jordan, to build
a bouse in their.town also. Other
women have followed her example,
and there are now three of these
brothels on the Fort George town-
site.    .':■■;. ...     ! '(';.'
There is, however, an opposing element in Fort George. This consists
of people who really oppose the invasion on principle, and others Whose
opposition is based upon a desire'to
stigmatize South Fort George by reference to,a condition which could not
be' utilized to    the disadvantage ot

visit shortly. He left Montreal recently. From Edmonton he will go
to the end of Bteel at Tete Jaune
Cache, and he will probably continue
|:his journey to this point. Accompanying Mr. Pocock is Cecil Randall,
an experienced English newspaper
man.. Mr. Pocock is well known in
the west, having lived in Edmonton
for ten years, during two years of
which period he was connected with

this town if their "clean" city were
encroached upon.
The misguided women who have
listened to the empty assurances of
the element that want them in Fort
George have apparently been the victims of a most unprofitable experiment. The police assert that they
will not permit any houses to open
outside of the distrtct they now occupy. '"'
The Jordan woman, on the other
hand, brazenly, asserts ber intention
to open \ the bouse which she bat!
built in the Fort George townsites.
This will probably have the effect ot
cleaning out the entire crew from
this district, for we cannot see how
the police can discriminate in ihis
matter, although the common sense
policy would appear to be segregation, .
The present "district" pp. thia
townsite,' can not exist for many
montlw longer,-' as it destroys the
value of some of ttie most desirable

The question is a most perplexing
one, It is generally admitted, even
by the clergy, that; a segregated area
is a necessity, but a great amount of
regulation is required at tbe
Mr. Alfred Waldron Smithers, chairman of the board of directors of the
Grand Trunk Railway, and godfather
of this town, has made the first contribution to the fund for a new Anglican church here that is being collected
by Bishop Du Vernet. Mr. Smithers
evidently has a warm spot in his heart
for his namesake in the Bulkley Valley
snd.it is surmised he will watch it grow
with much interest, says a dispatch
from the new town.
Mr. Smithers represents the highest
type of the skilled railroad executive
and is a financial authority who is rec- .
ognized throughout the,British Empire.
His rise in business was rapid. In ,
1873, when but 23 years old, he joined
the London Stock Exchange, but resigned in 1909 to devote his energies to
railroad development in Canada.. He
hu been, a director of the Grand Trunk
since 1895 and it is considered especially fitting that his name should be
placed prominently upon the map of
Western Canada. This is the only instance of such geographic distinction
in honor of the directorate along tbe
entire extension of the Grand Trunk
The town of Smithers has been selected by the railway as the first general freight and division point east of
Prince Rupert, the Pacific Coast terminus of the new road.
The Grand Trunk Pacific will have
its track laid to this point from Prince
Rupert by August 1st. Trains are expected to be in regular operation over
this division before the end of next
Big developments are promised with
the coming of the railway. Now a log
and canvas town, Smithers will take
on a permanent appearance as soon as
a number of business buildings now under construction are completed and the
railway begins work on its shops, round
houses, passenger depot, and other improvements necessary to handle the
business of the company at this general divisional point.
According to Collingwood Schneber,
chief consulting engineer for the Dominion government, who recently made
a trip Of inspection over the Grand
Trunk,Pacific route from Winnipeg to
Prince Rupert, the new transcontinental line will be in complete operation
from one coast of Canada to the other
by one year from next month.
Amongst the prominent visitors
here this week are Mr. J. A. Adamson and Mr. James Thompson, prominent business men of Winnipeg.
Mr. Adamson is president of the
Fort George Trading & Lumber Company, of this town, whose milling
and steamboating operations form .
an important part ot the industrial
activity of this community. Mr. Adamson is president of the Western
Trust Company, of Winnipeg, one of
the strongest trust companies in the
weat, and is also vice president ot
the Nortb Empire Fire Insurance
Company, and his name appears on
the boards ot many other important
concerns in western Canada.
Mr. Thompson, who'is president of
the Moose Mountain Lumber Company, of Winnipeg, ia another influential western , j business man. Both
are interested in the Fort George
country, and have great faith in the
future of this section.
Mr. Adamson is the owner of some
of the most valuable real estate lu
the city, aud whilst he Is here, we
understand that he will complete arrangements lor the erection of a
fine building on a double corner owned by bim on the corner of Second
Street and Hamilton Avenue.

QINCB the opening of navigation on-the upper Fraser river this
spring, the whole territory along the line of construction on
the G.T.P. through thi^.^etftion of the province has undergone a
great change. The roa^.having broken through the Yellowhead
pass during the winter months, gave, in the spring upon the navigable river, and opened up an avenue of travel for those bound
for Fort George,.the unchallenged centre of interest on the G.T.
P. between Edmonton and Prince Rupert,
In the brief period which has elapsed since navigation started
the population of the country along. the construction zone, and
tributary to Fort George, has enormously increased. Supplies,
being delivered in this section from Edmonton and eastern points
via the G.TP. steel and the Fraser river, are being poured into
the country. The mercantile houses are constantly increasing
their warehouse capacity and the supply on hand for the summer
conjunction appears to be equal to all .demands made, upon it.
The problem that confronts the .people,of this .section, however,
and a problem the solving of which should not be delayed, too
long, is the supply of this country during the next winter,
Where the eastern end-of-steel will be on the G.T.P. when winter sets in this year is a matter.upon which, no definite information can be obtained..   The bes,t authorities tell us, however,, that,
under the most favorable circumstances steel cannot reach, a point
nearer than 100 miles northeast of this place, for the supply of
this section during the six mphths' winter which • must be lived
through before the steel finally connects with this place'.   Arrangements should also be made for the transport of supplies.
over the steel as far as is practicable during, the. conning winter.,
There are hundreds of people here that.will leave the country
in fear of the winter months as soon as snow beginstofly. There,
is no longer any reason why South Fort .George- cannot enjoy
every convenience during,any season of the year, but the 300
mile wagon road haul from the south should be largely eliminated
as a route of supply for the coming winter if business, ^men are ,
alive to their opportunities.

TN an endeavor to depreciate the tojv.n of South Fort, George .in
the eyes of the public, and to follow out a policy-which is
identical with the impression of this town which the promoters of
the Fort George townsite wish to create, the newspaper published
on the Hammond townsites appeared last week with a strongly
featured article on its first page reciting Jhe facts in connection
with the building of houses of prostitution on the Fort George
In order that we may establish the fact that the promoters of
the Fort George townsite wish to create a detrimental impression
regarding South Fort George we would quote the following, paragraphs from a recent advertising folder issued by the Natural
Resources Security Company, Limited,;,,
''Every new city that amounts to anything is troubled in the
beginning by camp followers, irresponsible and crooked ihdi-'
viduals of every description, male and female.  Fort George
being the most promising new city on, the continent is ho exception.   Most of them are hanging round on the outskirts,''
"Look out for these harpies, they, will tell-any kind of a
lie to 'get the money' or ,tq 'khock' the real Fort George
where they are not allowed to locate."
It is easy to see that the above is one of the veiled, insinuations o
intended to bewilder the distant lot holder or intending investor
and to injure this townsite, t Its application maybe more readily
understood' when we refer to thfi,^statement made by one of the
Hammoi\d lawyers before: the railway .commission at Ottawa on.

earth; people of the red lights/!,  And yet they^ won th^t application,! , Can it be wondered (that an appeal is being made,,?,   ,
On every available opportunity the newspaper-referred, .to has
endeavored to hurt South Fort George by referring., to. the fact
that a restricted district existed withjn dts confines, -

spite of the inflated reports of the growth and de-
ient of other townsite areas hereabouts, South Fort
;e continues to lead in business development, real
iy values and population are as of yore. The town-
consisting of lots 933 and 984, comprising an acreage
ly 160 acres all told, is now applying for incorpora-
I a municipality.   This movement is strongly sup-
and will doubtless be carried through within the
lew months.   Municipal incorporation will allow the
Iinity to administer its own affairs in such wise that
levelopment of the town will proceed upon modem
and will provide for the equipment of South Fort
-ewith every adjunct of modern development as cir-
tances will justify.

* of South Fort George,, cpmWni^g with the
way Company, will present a strong case io tne suu-com-
mittee of the Cananiari Cabinet. The government are
investigating the matter for themselves, and after the
appeal is heard The Herald believes that the station will
be located 6000 feet east of the eastern boundary of the
Hammond townsites, on the point selected for it by the
G.T.P. engineers. It will be shown that the * best interests of this district favor the railway's location for the
depot site, and that the spot designated by the Railway
Commission is unfitted for th$ purpose of the railway
company, and is located in such a manner that it will destroy the value of the Prince George townsite as a divisional point. The arguments to be advanced by the Hammond lawyers will, we believe, be dissipated by the statements of engineers.
• Construction activity is evident on all sides at present.
The steam shovels working on the Nechaco river front are
now making a second cut across the face of the Hammond townsites. The high banks at this point must
take a long slope. The Bates-Rogers Construction Company have established a camp on the island in the river
here which is crossed by the Fraser river bridge, from
which base they will start the work of putting in the
foundations for their bridge contract as soon as the low
water permits.

Editor "Herald":
1 am advised by "Toronto Saturday
Night," to write you for information
as to lots in plot 777. Will you please
give me what information you can as
to the general level of that land; is it
about the same as the rest of South
Fort George and is it likely to be desirable for business, or would it be
good residence property? Please let
me know about lot 63, block 16 especially. Inclosed find stamp for reply.
Will certainly appreciate any information you are able to give.
B. F. S.
Lot 777 lies at the southwest
corner of the Indian Reserve,
which is being surveyed as the
G. T. P. townsite of Prince
George. This subdivision was
the first piece of land subdivided
into town Lots here. It is badly
laid out, the streets being narrow
and the lots having only 25 feet
frontage. Your lot is in the low
land which is inundated during
the high water by the flooding
of a slough. A lot of the land
in 777 is of excellent quality, and
the subdivision is of a generally
level character. The north half
is the best section of the subdivision. It will scarcely qualify
during the next ten years as
business property, but may in
time be useful as residential
property if the prices are not too
high for the class of sub-division
this is.
We have just received a full
line of the above. This is a
new and complete stock.

Editor "Herald":
The writer woJd be pleased to have
your candid opinion of lots two and six,
block 12, lot 925, Cariboo district, Fort
George, plan 867, both in the matter of
price, and if you consider this a good
Thanking you very much for' your
kind attention to this inquiry.
R. B. 0.
Your lots are in the low land.
See former inquiry re this property. A creek, running out of a
small lake on the border of Lot
1430 and Lot 777 runs through
this property and flows into the
Fraser river on the Hudson Bay
Campany's land. At high water
the river rises above the mouth
of this creek and backs the water up in the low land, forming a
lake. This crosses Lots- 777, 931
and 932"and the H. B. Land;
Your lot is worth about $200 I
should think, as the best lots in
the addition are now selling for
$300. There is no townsite development on the addition.
I This must seem like a funny land to live in and so it 1?, when we
consider that a few years ago Fort George war. only a dot on the map;
the center of a great lone land where the native Indians gathered from
nearly all parts of the province to hold common council, to draft tl.cir
primitive and unwritten codes of law and to dispose of their furs to the
managers of the Hudson Bay Tost, who was tu them cl that time anout,
the only emblem that a white race existed.
When we think of the same place today, that, we can drop into a
store like Kennedy, Blair & Co.Wtf,, and inn chase almost any article that oan be bought in tlie great city department stores at almost the
same price it makes us realize that we are living in a swift age indeed.
This week we arc specializing on Ladies' Apparel. We venture to
boast that we have the most nifty line of ladies'wear ever imported

Lot 925 is level land. Some of
the lots command a'good view of
the Fraser river, and in time
may be valuable for residential
property. If the P. G. E. railway comes into prince' George
on this side of the river, as we
believe it will, 925 will be benefitted thereby. 'Cannot place a
valuation on this property as it
is not handled here at all.
